1981 Volvo 240 Description

  • Selling my 1981 Volvo 242 in good condition. The car runs and drives great and only has 71844 on the clock. I saved this car at the beginning of the year from the previous owner that had left in stranded in a carport for almost 10 years. The car was abandoned due to the fueling system failing. I bought the car with the intentions of restoring it. As you can see in the photos the car is in great condition for sitting that amount of time. The entire fuel system has been gone through and nw works flawlessly (passed CA emissions). The exterior has had a full paint correction and the paint is very glossy. The paint does have some dents and scratches but thats the only bad thing about the exterior, have used paint matching to try and hide them. The Interior is a good as an old Volvo gets, I spent a lot of time finding the best of the best replacement parts that I could with restoring it to its former glory.
